Estimates show that 70% of Chinese students studying abroad in the United States and Canada have taken courses at New Oriental Education and Technology Group, one of the largest nongovernmental educational companies in China. Yu Minhong (Michael Yu), “the richest teacher in China,” began his career as an English tutor who helped students get good scores on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). With help from his family and later his classmates who returned to work in China after studying abroad, Yu transformed a humble English-language training school into a public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. His story inspired the 2013 Chinese movie American Dreams in China. Yu shares his management philosophy and what he has learned over his career in this article published by Legend Capital CEO Club, a WeChat wemedia account focused on business and career advice. Small business owners will appreciate his insights on managing the company, sculpting the company culture, dealing with staffers and staying innovative. getAbstract recommends this article to small business owners.
